Hospice Auxiliary sets third butterfly release for June 15

CROSSVILLE — The Fairfield Glade Hospice Auxiliary will present the third annual Hospice Benefit Celebration of Life Butterfly Release Saturday, June 15, on the courthouse lawn in Crossville, from 9 to 10 a.m. The program will be an uplifting and joyful experience remembering those we have loved and lost, including a reading of the names they are celebrating, a butterfly blessing, special music, commemorative readings and the release of the butterflies to mingle with the crowd and flowering plants.

The donation for the butterflies is $20 for one name to be remembered or $100 for six different names to be remembered. They encourage the public to attend the event, bring a lawn chair and wear brightly colored clothing. Those unable to attend can still reserve butterflies in the name of a family member or friend and these will also be released.

Butterfly order forms are available at the Hospice office at 30 East Adams St. You can also complete and submit the required information — your name, phone number, email address, the name(s) of those whose life you wish to have memorialized/honored and if you plan on attending or want the butterflies released on your behalf.

Checks can be made payable to FFG Hospice Auxiliary for Celebration of Life and mailed to FFG Hospice Auxiliary, P.O. Box 1943, Crossville, TN 38558. Once your check has been received, you will receive a confirmation by telephone or email. If you have any questions, please call 707-5329 or (720) 319-1457.

The deadline for ordering butterflies is May 31.

Proceeds from this event will continue the important work of Hospice of Cumberland County to provide quality end of life care for the terminally ill and grief support for their families.

  • AROUND THE TOWN: The Easter egg hunt that never was

    The Easter Bunny should be able to deliver his baskets in pretty nice weather this weekend. The Good Friday and Easter holiday weekend should feature much warmer temperatures than we had earlier this week when snow showers fell on Cumberland County. Cumberland County students were released Tuesday for spring break, but their last day of school for the week found snow and ice falling from the sky and temperatures in the 20s. Students will return to class on Monday.

  • PLATEAU GARDENING: Cool-season lawn grass fertilization and soil tests

    Recently, I got an inquiry about the right timing for homeowners who want to fertilize a cool-season lawn which has bare spots that need over-seeding. An email from a new resident in the Crossville area asked how to take a soil sample and where to have it tested. Since problems with the pH or fertility of the soil beneath can result in chronically thin grass with persistent bare places up top, testing the soil then correcting pH and fertility to match plant needs can be an important first step in maintaining your lawn.
